Mom and Colton sat up in the nosebleed section. I wanted to see what it looked like so I followed him up there. It was STEEP! I think after you got seated it wasn't too bad but walking back down was frightening if you were afraid of heights.
Colton didn't mind sitting up there. My seat was down in the 100s section about halfway back. So I spied them bobbing their heads to the "Shake Shake" song to get the crowd pumped up before the first act. Colton also got his sno-cone he wanted so bad but he said it tasted horrible - too much like banana. But they were giving me the "Cheers" sign from the balcony!
One of the opening acts was Gloriana which I love and that was the main reason why I was going to the concert. Their harmonies were great and I got even more excited when they said they would be signing autographs after the next act right outside my section.
Kellie Pickler was next and I was anxious to see what she was like in concert since she was always so ditzy on American idol. She came out in a black outfit but the shiniest shoes I have ever seen. They were like Dorothy's red shoes only silver. I tried to get a picture of them but she didn't stay still very long. She sounded good and the crowd sang along with her. But I was so excited to meet Gloriana so I only listened to 5 of her songs and then went to wait in line outside.
So the line for Gloriana autographs was about twice as long as the women's bathroom line. Colton was so excited that he was a boy after he saw the line for the women's bathroom. He was in and out before we even inched towards the opening of the door.
I was a little bit bummed because I was hoping to get a picture with them but they said no pics. Security wanted to keep the line moving so I will just have to superimpose my face on their autographed picture sometime. They sounded awesome and I hope they do well in the future. Taylor deserves her own day so I'm devoting tomorrow to her.
